9:26pm

9:39pm
ago, but chicago tribune restaurant critic phil vettel says its already one of the best restaurants in the city. heres his review. >> grace, which opened in december, is a spectacular haven of elegance and refinement, which means expensive. for many of us, dinner here is a rich uncle or a lottery ticket away. but chef/owner curtis duffy formerly chef at avenues and sous chef at alinea, has a ready answer as to why he went the luxury route: >>it's all that i know. you know, it would be unfair for me to stop what i was pursuing, and work backwards. >>for those who do visit here's what you can expect: a beautiful dining room, elegant and neutral, even the art is abstract, so you focus on the chef's plates. a huge glass- enclosed kitchen, where you can see duffy at work. this guy has more tweezers in his kitchen than i do forks in mine. and glimpse the coolest-looking spice rack in the world. even the restrooms are special designed for the seasons. this is the winter room with its ice floe sink and it's igloo-look
9:40pm
wall tiles. not cold, but very cool. dinner will be a parade of eight to twelve courses, focused intensely on star ingredients. this is the carrot course.... a root to sprout composition of caramelized carrots, carrot chips and carrot tops. here we have a study in parsnip: puree and gelee, with dried pineapple, raw fennel and frozen tarragon ice. the vegetable menu includes fortified chestnut puree with black truffles, salted truffle meringue in red sorrel leaves, and meaty maitake mushrooms served with a coffee-infused potato puree. after these two courses, i felt as though i had eaten a steak. on the protein side, there's a cute, side-by- side veal cheek dish that is almost dancing literally cheek to cheek. and a meld of poached salmon, cabbage leaves and potato, jazzed up by a citrus foam. desserts continue the ingredient-focused pattern. this is poached quince, rolled into cones filled with tamarind juice, held together in place with quince puree. poached cranberries arrive with toasted
9:41pm
meringue and pine ice. and my favorite combines coconut flesh with coconut water gelee and vivid basil sorbet and african blue basil. i give grace (652 west randolph st.) ....4 stars. grace is the best new restaurant in chicago, and even though it's only february, i don't think i'll change my mind in 10 months. for wgn news and the chicago tribune, this is phil vettel. he went way out on the lam with that one ... the second week in a row a four-star restaurant ... >> for more on this week's restaurant, text phil to: 9 7 9 9 9 ringing in the lunar new year on the west side. next, a special celebration at the garfield park conservatory. and fat tuesday is right around the corner- so you know what that means.... it's paczki time.
